I love starting a new project. I think what I love most is the anticipation of what might happen. 

This is one of the wonders of wood turning. You look at a block of wood and like a label less can from the supermarket you just don't know what is inside. I have just started a new project, well started to think about it anyway. I have chosen the wood and even mounted it. The real question becomes what will appear as I peel the wood away. Will my ambitions fall short of my abilities (it often happens). Will there be a beautiful colour or feature as I turn the wood, or will it disintegrate into match sticks with a careless stroke of the tools? As I said its all about the anticipation, and a little inspiration and perhaps some perspiration.  I will let you know how it goes.
